I have a complaint. I don't know who to complain to so I'll complain to you in the hope you can do something about it.
I am getting totally fed up with loud music in films or on TV plays, especially when people are talking and the music overcomes what they are saying making it difficult to understand. You cannot control it with the remote control because if you lower the volume it lowers the speech as well as the music. If you increase the volume the music drowns the actors talking.
It is totally stupid. Why not have films with no music at all?
I know ... you will say that if we had no music in films we would not have had such tunes like Gone with the wind, Dr Zhivago, Exodus and so on. Yes, I like this kind of music which is often associated with great films; but it is only appropriate when the actors are not talking, but watching cattle in the prairies, wildebeests travelling through the savannahs, or spaceships travelling through space whilst Captain Jean-Luc Picard is eating ice cream. Loud music is not appropriate when actors are saying something important relevant to the plot.
And another thing; I hate it when you have a love scene with a couple in bed and there's music in the background. I would certainly not want a whole orchestra in the bedroom when I'm having such a moment!
Or when there's a fight on; whether it is gladiators fighting with swords, or cowboys and indians, cops and robbers or whatever ... why is there stupid background music?
As for that shower scene from Psycho ... the crazy music would have made the whole cinema audience wet themselves in their seats. What's so clever about that?
